Kristoffer Dahy Ernst, Double Projects

Copenhagen, Denmark

On one of several occasions that we spoke with Kristoffer Dahy Ernst, it is the middle of Danish fashion week in Copenhagen, but the former Euroman staffer is, as he puts it, “home talking to [you guys].” You see, Dahy Ernst has chosen to remove himself a bit from the craziness of his former profession as an online editor and tuck himself into the work that means most to him—his own.
Kristoffer grew up just outside Århus, Denmark’s second-largest city. He moved to Copenhagen in 2006 for University. Even while in school, Dahy Ernst already preferred the potential of real, paid journalism than the papers he had due for class. “I started to write a little bit, because I was always more into working than studying,” he says. “I was approaching magazines and asking if they needed stories…” He took a year abroad in London, and before he left, approached Danish men’s magazine Euroman with a proposition—“I told them ‘guys, I’ll be in London, so if you have an assignment there, I’m your guy.” Euroman responded and asked Dahy Ernst to interview Liam Gallagher of Oasis. Things went well, and Euroman kept calling. ●
